    Help Your Child Succeed in School: Build the Habit of Good Attendance Early




    • Starting in kindergarten, too many absences or tardies can cause children to fall behind in school.
    • Missing school can make it harder to learn to read.
    • Students can still fall behind if they miss just a day or two days every few weeks.
    • Being late to school may lead to poor attendance.
    • Absences can affect the whole classroom if the teacher has to slow down learning to help children catch up.
    • Attending school regularly helps children feel better about school—and themselves.

    • Set a regular bed time and morning routine.
    • Lay out clothes and pack backpacks the night before.
    • Don’t let your child stay home unless they are truly sick. Keep in mind complaints of a stomach ache or headache can be a sign of anxiety and not a reason to stay home.
    • If your child seems anxious about going to school, talk to teachers, school counselors, or other parents for advice on how to make them feel comfortable and excited about learning.
    • Develop back-up plans for getting to school if something comes up. Call on a family member, a neighbor, or another parent.
    • Avoid medical appointments and extended trips when school is in session.
